September 30, 2006 - Pan 0.115: "Mrs. Kerr Says Remember the Tip Jar"
This is "weekly" beta #26(!) of a full Pan redesign and rewrite in C++.
The quick turnaround time between each beta is to squash as many bugs
as possible before the pending 1.0 release. Feedback and bug reports
are very much encouraged.
This is the last `big change' release before 1.0. The big news
this week is a series of optimizations that cut memory use in
big groups by about 60%! This is huge news for alt.binaries readers.
Bug Tickets addressed in this release:
358077 cut memory use by about 60% for large binaries groups
358204 cut group loading time by 20%
357863 marking an article unread does not update grouplist.
349012 header pane's mouse-drag-select works in gtk+ 2.10.
358305 make tasks window clearer
358409 automatic radio button checking in save dialog
357698 part two of the followup-charset bug.
358073 the error log should give more helpful NNTP error messages.
